This Ex-Comedian Is Giving Back To Nature
You see it all of the time. Stars retiring from the limelight to pursue new dreams. Some are business related ventures, traveling, or fulfilling a life’s purpose. Ex Comedian Jon Stewart is doing the latter.
John and his wife Tracey have created an animal sanctuary for abused animals. Stewart has always been an advocate of animal welfare and now he is putting his time into something truly remarkable.

By Jay Syrmopoulos – Middletown, NJ – In an effort to be the change he wishes to see in the world, comedian John Stewart, after stepping down as host of “The Daily Show,” has started a sanctuary for abused factory farm animals called Bufflehead Farm.
Bufflehead Farm, located in Middletown, New Jersey, is a 12-acre non-profit animal rescue sanctuary owned by Jon and Tracey Stewart, which will soon become home to dozens of cows, pigs, sheep, turkeys and other animals rescued from factory farms.
Stewart has consistently been an animal welfare advocate on his show, once devoting a comedy segment to the foolishness of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s refusal to sign a bill that would end the lifelong confinement of pigs in crates too small for them to turn around.
Tracey Stewart is known for her advocacy on animal rights, recently publishing a book on the topic.
According to a report by the Mother Nature Network:
Her new book “Do Unto Animals” (currently the No. 1 bestseller in animal husbandry on Amazon) offers more than 300 pages of beautiful illustrations and promises to give readers “insights into the secret lives of animals and the kindest ways to live with and alongside them.”
Jon Stewart, accompanied by his wife and two children, were honored at the awards ceremony held by Farm Sanctuary, an organization founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals.
The consistency of the Stewarts should be applauded. Rather than simply paying lip service to a cause, they are putting in the groundwork to support their espoused beliefs.
